The Zach magnetic paddle is manufactured by Variable LC Components in the Czech Republic. High quality machined brass with custom made wooden finger paddles. Magnetic tension using very strong neodymium magnets. The mechanism and contacts are enclosed within a solid chunk of machined brass for many years of trouble free service. Not as pretty as a Begali or Frattini but just as good in every other way. I found the action to be light and responsive, equal to my Begali keys. I have too many keys and need to downsize. Includes 1 meter cable with 3.5 mm connectors. Will be packed securely for shipping. Can deliver in the greater Vancouver area.
